Abstract

This paper compares recent solar valuation approaches in nine states that have explicitly engaged in actions to determine compensation for distributed energy resources, including distributed solar. The selected states represent a variety of political environments, regulatory structures, climate policies, sizes, and starting places for current compensation. The paper examines key factors that influence these states’ solar valuation processes and, where possible based on the administrative record, factors that state policymakers explicitly declined to consider.

Keywords: solar, valuation, distributed energy
